    Am I the only one who thought Bradford was getting a music contract after reading the title?

      Im pretty sure thats how the NBA does it. they set the scale and every year increase the pick so that way the pick makes a little more then last years, I guess for the economy reason or something.

      Per wikipedia, I am wrong. The only thing for rookies is the 1st pick had to make more then the 2nd, and the 2nd more then the 3rd, etc.

        That is outrageous. No rookie should get that much guaranteed. I don't think the whole contract should be that high, much less just the guaranteed portion.

              Even the guaranteed money figures in a contract like that are misleading. Just like Russell, Ryan, and Stafford, Bradford's guaranteed figure is above and beyond what he'll actually get from that contract.

                I agree it is ridiculous. No rookie should make that much money.

                  Next Pro Bowl QB to have his contract expire will get a bigger one. Next year's top pick will get a bigger one too if there's no scale. It's how the NFL works.

                    The pro bowl QB has at least done something to earn it. The rookie scale can't come soon enough imo.....I can't imagine another CBA being reached without one.

                      For those of you wondering when all this ridiculousness started, it was pretty much with Michael Vick. Peyton Manning and Tim Couch received $8 and $7 million per year, including 11.6 and 12.5 million bonus respectively.

                      Fast-forward two years, Michael Vick is getting over $10 million per year. Then it got even worse with Eli Manning. He got $9 million per year, but his guaranteed money doubled what Carson Palmer got the season before to 20 million.

                        Are you somehow arguing that Peyton and Couch's contracts weren't ridiculous to start with?

                          I can't see how the vets like this so I'd have to think they'd go along with the owners to create a rookie pay scale.

                            Agreed, the NFL needs a rookie wage scale desperately.

                              yes, because he capitalized 'record' for some reason.

                                Are you guys actually surprised? This should be expected, they didn't implement a Rookie Wage Scale this year and the contracts are just going to keep going higher without it.
